Just saying...

Although reel world matters is, predominently, a film related site, I felt this absurb piece of news couldn't pass without some kind of comment. The British Government, it was reported yesterday, are to scrap oral tests from foreign language GCSE examinations because they're considered as being "too stressful" for pupils. I don't know about you, but, to my way of thinking, not being able to speak a language kind of negates the whole point of learning it in the first place.
